Xen might be doing well in some distributions but in lenny it has been a
disaster.  We have been stuck with a dead-end branch that no-one has the
time and knowledge to fix.  I believe squeeze will be better due to the
common base kernel version and some support from upstream Xen developers
(particularly Ian Campbell), but it will still lack the wide support
that KVM gets as a project that has been merged into the kernel.
